I mean, yeah, its a difficult situation to be in but they didn't follow the "chain of command". Per MPD training and policy, the first car on scene (Lane and Kueng) are in charge of it until a superior officer, like a sergeant arrives and all assisting cars defer to the first car. Now in real life, yeah that's maybe easier said than done but they should have known they were in charge of the scene.
